/* AVf_REAL is set for all AVs whose xav_array contents are refcounted.
 * Some things like "@_" and the scratchpad list do not set this, to
 * indicate that they are cheating (for efficiency) by not refcounting
 * the AV's contents.
 * 
 * AVf_REIFY is only meaningful on such "fake" AVs (i.e. where AVf_REAL
 * is not set).  It indicates that the fake AV is capable of becoming
 * real if the array needs to be modified in some way.  Functions that
 * modify fake AVs check both flags to call av_reify() as appropriate.
 *
 * Note that the Perl stack has neither flag set. (Thus, items that go
 * on the stack are never refcounted.)
 *
 * These internal details are subject to change any time.  AV
 * manipulations external to perl should not care about any of this.
